A thought experiment white paper by Tony Estrella
What does the future hold for healthcare systems after the COVID-19 pandemic?
The adoption of digital health that we've seen in the last few months is inspiring. The positive impact on people's lives gives us hope that we can eventually learn from the challenges we are facing today to shift from sick care to personalised healthcare and dynamic prevention.
Through the support of FutureProofing Healthcare and Roche, Tony Estrella authored a white paper blending his storytelling expertise with his healthcare experience that envisions an optimistic view of APAC health in 2050. In this future, the world has overcome the current pandemic and is now focused on longevity, data driven decisions, & better health outcomes.

When Star Trek first aired on TV in 1966, the Russian and American space programmes were less than 10 years old. The imaginative sequences and narratives of this series and other space-themed science fiction shaped the minds of many who later became pioneers in developing the space programmes we have today. This power of storytelling is explored in great depth in Yuval Noah Harari's widely read book Sapiens.
As technology such as Artificial Intelligence, robotics, blockchain, and smart devices permeate every aspect of current healthcare systems, storytelling has an opportunity to again spark the imagination of many to achieve a new vision of better health systems and outcomes.
As an author, Tony enjoys exploring and developing engaging narratives to describe how people will be affected by disruptive shifts in technology.
